The GOP has been propping him up on a pedestal as the "good guy with a gun" but when they don't need him anymore, they will cast him aside like yesterday's newspaper. It happened to that kid from Kentucky, it happened to Madison Cawthorn, and it will happen to Marjorie Three Names. When they become too toxic for the brand, they will get booted.

to require that, prior to serving in the House, or the Senate, or as President or VP, a winning candidate must first pass the same background check that all federal civil servants have to pass.

Yeah states will scream, but the federal position shuld be "run any candidate you want, but if your winning candidate fails the background check, that candidate will not be seated."

(And this should be revisited each time an incumbent runs for re-election.)

For example, I've never quite grasped the manly significance of riding a motorcycle. To me, it looks like you're sitting on your ass, flexing your wrist. Nothing about it seems all that rugged he-manly. So I'm missing that gene.

Same thing goes for this five seconds of squirting lead. What's the attraction? What's so gosh-darned intoxicating about it that makes strong men go weak in the knees? You're flexing your finger. La de dah. I'm missing that gene, too.

Plus, in the military, you have to do what you are told, when you are told, for as long as you are told. Rottenhouse would burst into tears after ten minutes of military life.

who thinks it's a wise idea to put a instrument of death and destruction like that in the hands of an emotionally and psychologically stunted little boy like that, just for some cheap, psuedo-patriotic thrill?

A weapon like that is highly regulated, and someone with a history of using firearms in a violent and haphazard way shouldn't even be allowed in the same zip code with it.

The way in which the rabid-right has glorified and elevated this juvenile murderer to celebrity status is sick and completely past the pale of logic and reason. That punk needs years of psychiatric help, not rock-star groupie groping pampering and worship.

This country is beyond fucked up, and there is absolutely no way we can put this toxic toothpaste back in its tube. It's here to stay, legally or illegally, and thousands more will die because of it. It makes me physically ill that my grandchildren will have to grow up in this sick, stupid country.

This kid is going to find what he did is impossible to live down, and that means the people he looks up to like cops, military, and medical professions, are not going to want him.
